Lionel Messi in Dolce & Gabbana - FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala 2012

Lionel Messi was in Zurich yesterday to receive the FIFA Ballon d'Or 2012 trophy. The Barcelona and Argentina forward has been awarded the Ballon d'Or for a fourth year running, and took to the stage in a polka dot tuxedo from Dolce & Gabbana. There were quite a few comments online, critising his choice of attire, which I'm really surprised. I honestly thought he looked really good there. Loving the bold polka dot jacket and matching bow tie. I think he carried off the look beautifully.

Cristiano Ronaldo in DSquared2 - FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala

Cristiano Ronaldo attended the FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala 2013 at Congress House in Zurich yesterday. The highly esteemed Real Madrid footballer was one of the three contenders of the much coveted trophy. Ronaldo wore an elegant black tuxedo with satin finishes, created especially for him by Dean & Dan Caten of Dsquared2. He paired it with a clean-cut white shirt and sharp black bowtie. Patent lace-up shoes and a skinny belt finished the look.

Damian Lewis in Burberry - 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards

Damian Lewis attended the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles yesterday. Damian, who won Best Actor in a Television Show (Drama) for "Homeland", wore a black satin notch lapel tuxedo, white dress shirt, black satin bow tie and black patent leather dress shoes all by Burberry. He looked absolutely jubilant at the event, definitely a well deserved award which I'm sure many "Homeland" fans will agree.

Justin Bartha in Giorgio Armani - 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards

It's Justin Bartha! I was so excited to see him on the red carpet yesterday for the 70th Annual Golden Globes Awards, held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. Us viewers across the Atlantic pond were treated to the first episode of "The New Normal" last Thursday on E4, and I am hooked. I have not laughed so hard at a television series for ages. Love love love Justin Bartha in the series, where he played one half of a gay couple, trying for a baby via a surrogate.

Orlando Bloom in Burberry - Golden Globes Awards After Party

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom attended the 14th Annual Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party held at the Oasis Courtyard at the Beverly Hilton Hotel yesterday evening in Los Angeles. The British actor wore an ink satin notch lapel tuxedo from Burberry, paired with a white dress shirt and dark wine leather dress shoes also by Burberry.

Mark McNairy Camo Desert Boots

We had a crush on this pair of desert boots from Mark McNairy. Since its launch in 2008, the New Amsterdam brand got us used to a hint of quirkiness in its creations, still keeping tradition as a backdrop. Since summer 2011, the creator felt free to use many patterns and striking colors. Following the same spirit, camouflage appeared on the autumn-winter 2012 pairs. Camo is a tough one! I mean, it may be hard to match. As for us, to make those magnifiscent desert boots “shine” we think of a chinos/jeans, sweater, parka combo. They are made in Northamptonshire, England for an irreproachable construction: crepe soles, Goodyear welt and camo printed upper. Certainly not the kind of pair you would wear everyday, but confirmed styles may offer themselves a nice gift, quality as quirky and 70% off!
